Looks like the merganser had reason to be concerned too. Excellent use of lighting, beautiful comp and detail here!

Thanks Heather. Sometime nature grant me with something special. That was one of these. For the story. Well, You got to know now that my other passion (after photo) is writing. I love playing with words and I can count on a big imagination.

At the Carbonneau marsh in Sherbrooke. I was intrigue to see the big guy climbing the tree trunk ( using his beak? ) to get on top. A merganser ( may be a young one ) is looking at the trouble maker with some anxiety.
